For recording artist, actor, and performer Reid Soria, Autism Sings is the culmination of years spent overcoming the odds.  Diagnosed with autism at the age of 3, Reid was never expected to be able to communicate or connect with the world around him.  Now 31, Reid has channeled his talents and sheer grit into an unprecedented story of hope.  And in finding his own voice, Reid has found a new voice for autism and is communicating and connecting beyond what was once considered possible.  Follow the story and become a part of the dream.        When words fail, Autism Sings!

--Autism Sings, 2014--

WELCOME to Autism Sings !

On Sunday March 26th, at 1 PM Reid performed on Stage 1 at the Cherry Blossom Festival  in Conyers, Ga. If you haven't been to the Cherry Blossom Festival   in Conyers, you have got to add it to your bucket list! The crowd was awesome and the venue  was fabulous! BIG SHOUT OUTs to Ms. Jill Miller for booking Reid (and for inviting him back next year!), to Randy Miller for being  such a big fan, for Devin  Bacon for doing such great emcee work, and to Mark Joseph and crew of SOUND SOLUTIONS for such great technical and sound work. Reid has been invited back for the 2018 edition of the Festival!  On a personal note, thank you to Turk and Jackie who made the trip to listen to Reid.  See photos below of Reid boarding the Reidmobile  to travel to Conyers and on Stage 1 at the Cherry Blossom Festival.

Great news!! We are thrilled to announce that Reid will be making guest appearances with the Village Belles at HarborWalk's summer Red, White & Blue Celebrations. Come see Reid and these lovely ladies as they take the stage every Thursday night throughout the months of June, July, and August. These ladies put on a fantastic patriotic show and we are delighted for Reid to be a part of this wonderful tribute to our country and military. Thank you Caroline Majure and Village Belles for inviting Reid to share the stage with you!

On Friday April 7th, Autism Sings presented an Autism Awareness program for the ASPIRE students at Elliot Point Elementary School, FWB. Autism Sings has developed this program and it is especially designed for schools and students. The program includes  Jo Soria, RN, discussing autism and how it may relate to students, discussing how we can learn to reach out to those who may have various differences,  encouraging students to try new experiences that will help broaden their horizons, and encouraging students to work hard to overcome obstacles.  Included in the program were Reid singing a few relevant songs, and interaction with the students as they sang and danced along  with him. Our multimedia presentation included PowerPoint slides of Reid overcoming his own obstacles and a short video clip of Reid singing and dancing with the Fred Astaire Studio dancers at the Mattie Kelly Arts Theater. Last school year, the Okaloosa School District Title I Office invited Autism Sings to present our program to four schools and invited us back for the current school year.   Like the previous presentations, this year's program has met with rave reviews from students and teachers.  The goal of our program is to reach a young generation about autism, acceptance, and working hard to realize their dreams. Contact us if you would like to discuss the 45-60 minute program for your school, camp, or event.

Reid sang the National Anthem at the Blue Wahoo Stadium In Pensacola  on April 9th,  It was an awesome performance followed by an amazing game!  See photo of Reid on the big screen at Wahoo Stadium!

YOOHOO!! Happy New Year!! And what a way to bring in 2017.  DEPARTURE: The Journey Tribute Band was playing at the Harborwalk in Destin on New Year's Eve. Big thanks to David Triana and Caroline Majure for arranging for Reid to be on-stage and sing  Journey's smash hit Faithfully with the band. Go to the Harborwalk, Reid Soria and DEPARTURE FaceBook pages to see some awesome videos of the performance.  Big SHOUT-OUT to all the band members for  letting Reid share the stage with you and transforming his dream into  reality. Autism acceptance has reached a whole new level...You guys ROCK!!!

On March 18th, Reid performed two sets  at the Spring Fam Jam on the Mullet Festival Grounds in Niceville, FL. He also shared the stage later that evening with Continuum for a rendition of Journey's smash hit "Open Arms".  Thank you Continuum! Your band rocks! See photos above of Reid and the band at the rehearsal for the show.

On April 1st, 10 AM Reid sang the National Anthem to kick off the "Bark for Life" event  near the Destin, FL City Hall. Thank you Michelle and Mitra for inviting Reid to take part in your great event! Reid will also be singing at the April 28th Relay For Life at Joe Etheredge Stadium. Other shout outs to B-Boy Productions for the sound and to emcee Aimee Shaffer.

One of the most amazing, rewarding, and recurring  aspects of traveling with Reid is the opportunity to see and hear how he affects others. The recent performance at the Cherry Blossom Festival (Conyers, GA) was another striking example. As Reid was performing, Tracy Knutsen came over and introduced herself. She is a member of the Rockdale (GA) Autism Support Group. They had a booth at the Festival not far from where Reid was singing. She said she just felt led  to come over and give Reid a gift she had made (see photo). Thank you Tracy!

Reid sharing the stage with the awesome  "Moon Lagoons" band as they absolutely rocked a cover of Cake's  "Going the Distance."  A video of this performance will be coming soon.

Reid at the Spring Fam Jam pictured here with one of the most successful businessmen in the world, Mr. Edwin Watts. Mr. Watts' band, The Mulligans, had just completed their set and he decided to stay and hear Reid perform. Mr. Watts was so impressed with Reid and so complimentary of his performance, that he invited Reid perform with his band sometime when they can both work out their schedules. The Mulligans are quite a favorite in a our area. What a great opportunity for Reid! Thank you Mr. Watts!
